Hurricane Dalila (dah-LY-lah) is drifting westward and farther away from Mexico's Pacific coast.

The storm late Tuesday had maximum sustained winds of 75 mph (120 kph). The storm is centered about 325 miles (523 kilometers) west-southwest of Manzanillo, Mexico. It was drifting to the west near 2 mph (3 kph).

The government of Mexico has issued no storm warnings or watches for the coast. Little change in strength is expected over the next 48 hours.

The National Hurricane Center in Miami said swells generated by Dalila are affecting portions of the southwest coast of Mexico.

The biggest danger is heavy surf and rip currents.
